Maeil Business Newspaper will present the insights into Korea’s future led by active seniors at this year’s Vision Korea event, going online next Monday for availability to broader public.

This year, Maeil Business Newspaper’s Vision Korea team has looked into ‘yolo,’ the generation of people aged between 65 and 75 who have emerged as a key economic player across the world, and studied the growing yolo’s role in revitalizing economy in the super-aging society.

The number of the yold generation is estimated to exceed 6 million this year and top 10 million in 2030, according to Maeil Business Newspaper’s study. By 2040, one out of four Koreans will be aged between 65 and 75, making the yold generation as the new pillar of the country’s labor force.

The 29th Vision Korea will unveil the findings and insights into ‘yolilocks,’ the ideal economic revival through active seniors, via website (mk.co.kr) at 5 p.m. on Monday, March 23.

The vision will also be aired by Maeil Broadcasting Network (MBN) at 10:30 a.m. on March 24 and MBN Money at 11:20 a.m. on the same day.
